UMC Foundation
Life Saving Care for Our Region's Sickest Patients

Causes: Emergency Response, Health and Wellness, Women's Issues

University Medical Center is the region’s only Level 1 Trauma Center and is the community’s only not-for-profit community hospital. University Medical Center of El Paso is the primary teaching institution for Texas Tech University’s four-year Paul L. Foster School of Medicine in El Paso. As such, the University Medical Center of El Paso/Texas Tech campus is the only academic healthcare setting in far West Texas and Southern New Mexico. That affiliation and the fact that University Medical Center of El Paso is El Paso’s only not-for-profit, community-owned hospital, help ensure that high-quality healthcare services are available to all, regardless of their ability to pay.

University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso is the designated 501(c)(3) charitable organization for UMC. Our goal is to provide support for UMC in fulfilling its vital mission of patient care, education of healthcare professionals, research, and community service to El Paso.
